IWW's annual subscription for 2017 is $50, discounted by $20 if you receive your newsletter by email.

A one-off $10 joining fee applies.

The subscription period is the calendar year and the new member subscription may reduce only after the last monthly competition of the year is due.

Prospective members are welcome to attend two IWW workshops before making the commitment to join. Some workshops may be 'Members Only' and this will be noted on the Upcoming Workshops calendar entry.

Prospective members are welcome to pay at the start of a workshop in order to attend a 'Member Only' workshop. Other ways to pay are detailed on the Member Application Form.

New members become eligible to enter competitions after their application has been tabled at a committee meeting and then approved in writing (usually via email).
